I remember hearing about this when it came out, and my nephew telling me not to bother because it's gangstah rap - not exactly hip-hop.

I cribbed this from one of those Amazon reviews:

"According to Proof, the reason he named the album after him is because Garcia's death was due to a combination of stress, drugs and poor diet, which are problems that everyone can relate to in one way or another. If you're expecting this album to sound like his work with D12, then you're in for a surprise. The album, released on the ten year anniversary of Garcia's death, deals with the concept of Proof's search for himself, which includes an introspective outlook on his life, as well as eclectic mix of styles and topics that could conform listeners from other genres, which is reminiscent of what Garcia himself would do."
